|The lady singing for all of us (sångledare)|
Så this week was a little bit different because we had something called Midsommar here in Sweden which is basically a huge celebration of the fact that it is the longest day of the year... I didn't notice anything different because I literally haven't seen it get dark since I got here. But it was a really good couple of days and we weren't able to proselyte on Friday and Saturday because of the celebration. It was a good time and basically we were outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather with members and got to dance around the may pole (well just me the other missionaries thought it was dumb to do that) but you know me... super shy and self conscious. So, in other words I danced around the pole like a frog and a pig and sang swedish songs... good times. Also, fun fact, here in Sweden the pigs say "nuff" instead of oink. I cant decide if they are geniuses or just wrong. But that was a really fun time.

Later on in the week we had a cool little mirakel. Elder Krebs and I were canceled on by one of our investigators (which never happens so that was super weird;)) But we had two backup plans and decided to pray and figure out the area that we needed to go work in. We got a strong prompting to go somewhere else completely and go by someone that lived there and then just work in that area if he wasn't home. We got out of the car and started to walk to the apartment building and we saw someone on the other side of the parking lot getting out of her car. so even though it might look weird ( again I am very shy) we did a little about face and walked over to her. I can only imagine how intimidating that would have been for her when two men in white shirts and ties started walking from the other side of the parking lot at her. But we introduced ourselves and were able to teach her there about our syfte and the message that we wanted to share with her. She told us that we absolutely could and we came back the next day with a less active member to teach with us that lives in the same building. Wow, it was pretty amazing and we are looking forward to teach her more this week. You have my witness that God answers prayers and gives us guidance when we put our best effort forward and rely on Him as we do what we can.
